Day 2 with Danny and Chris

Oh darn, I just missed another one!
Chris will have a hard time going home and catching fish that look like these.

Chris landed many 14 inch+ fish today. We floated from Vallie Bridge to Texas Creek. There was a strong wind along the Lone Pine Flats.

Chris' First Fishing Trip on the Arkansas River

Danny says get away from me fish!!

Danny caught a lot of fish and he missed a lot of fish.

Chris had a smile for every fish he caught. He said this was the most fish he has ever caught in a day. His arm will be tire tonight but hopefully he will be ready to go on tomorrows adventure.

Darlene missed many fish before she hooked this one.
She lucked out and hooked this one.
The 'Fish Spotter' gave her approval on this catch.
The 'Fish Spotter' said she finally got the hang of catching fish.

Two Brothers Attacking the Fish Today

Tom was happy to catch this brown.
This brown that jumped out of his hands was the biggest fish he had ever caught and he is sticking to his story.

Two more beauties.

Brad had a nice collection of fish pictures too.

Brad said this trip turned out to be more than he expected.
However, we did fight the wind. What's new????

The Fishing Was Good and the Catching Was Even Better!!

Brian said that this is one of the largest rainbows that he has caught on this river.
We used the hopper all day and it was successful ( and not a single one of my knots failed).
Pretty fish.
Brian landed many rainbows today.
